Isfahan

In October I posted a photo of a quilt top in progress which began life as my version
of Organised Chaos by Sujata, but took a different direction
when I decided to use just one fabric for the corners of the blocks and 
one fabric for the outer triangles.

 I had in mind a vision of an old Persian carpet, hence
Isfahan was born.


To those who may have seen this before on my Mystic Quilter
blog, apologies for the double viewing.

I absolutely loved making this, lots of colour
and the fabrics used are Kaffe Fassett Collective ones
and batiks.
 Bring on another Kaleidoscope!!

  3. I just love this quilt so very much. I can't figure out the blocks and color placement. I can't get a bigger closeup on my screen. This is a spectacular quilt!

  4. Thanks Linda, the block is a straightforward kaleidoscope, it's the placement of the fabrics which create the overall pattern and the small triangle corners in the blocks would change the effect depending on whether you used just one fabric, as I did, or whether you had a play around with more.

  5. I absolutely love the fact that you decided to use one fabric for the corner triangles. The secondary pattern is making quite the movement! It looks stunning!

    1. Thank you Sujasta, I love the Kaleidoscope pattern and would like to make more. My next one will be a little different and I hope to base more on Organised Chaos with the next one.

  7. What a view of Sujata as seen through Maureen's eyes. I love the way you've put your own personal twist on Sujata's idea. I've made kaleidsoscope before but not emphasized those smaller circles. Love the way they pop. Definitely worth a second post here.
    Congratulations to you both!
